Rifat murder case: Charge sheet likely on September 3

A Barguna court on Thursday set September 3 for submission of charge sheet in Rifat Sharif killing case.

The court of Barguna Senior Judicial Magistrate Sirajul Islam Gazi fixed the new date of charge sheet submission when police sought more time today.

Earlier, the law enforcers produced 14 accused in the case before the court around 10:30am today.

Rifat Sharif, 25, an internet service provider, was attacked and killed in a broad daylight by two youths and some others with sharp weapons near Barguna Government College in front of his wife on June 26.

In a video footage, Minni was apparently shown trying to protect her husband during the attack. She was also named as the main eye witness in the case.

Later at night, the victim’s father filed the murder case with Barguna Sadar Police Station, accusing 12 people including prime suspects Nayan and Rifat Farazi. Of them, Nayan was killed in a “gunfight” and Rifat Farazi was arrested later.
